Utility Process Framework

Utility Process Framework

The APQC utility process classification framework is a good place to get an overall picture of all the activities a typical utility. It includes a multi-tab excel worksheet outlining the activity hierarchy and detailed tasks that often fall under this activity. In particular, I would suggest reviewing section 10 related to operating utility assets and section 14 on the lifecycle of capital assets as these have more unique to the industry elements.

The complete process breakdown is available without cost from APQC here: https://www.apqc.org/resource-library/resource-listing/apqc-process-classification-framework-pcf-utilities-excel-version

To give you a better idea of what you would find inside this excel document, here is a screenshot example from the capital asset process section.
